Painting with the wind.
Most photographers pack up or don't attempt to take photos when the wind comes up. Professionals use this to their advantage. It took me days to capture this image. When I lay on my back and watched these flowers being blown erratically in the wind with the sun behind them the hairs on their stems stood out for me. (the white streaks) I also had to get the flower when it was right in front of the sun. Took a few hundred images and three days. The settings on the camera and the equipment has to be just right however. I had to see this image in my minds eye before I could capture it. No luck or Photoshop can do it.
